It's the late 1800s, the suffrage movement is gaining ground, and women are beginning to fight against the accepted roles of housewife and mother. Nalin is one of these women. She is a submissive wife to Carter and desperately longs for motherhood, but she struggles to balance her personality and desires with her belief that women should have equal rights to men. She begins defying all the normal conventions - she wears pants instead of skirts to town, she cusses, and she talks back to her husband. Carter's response is to take his wayward wife over his knee for a sound, bare-bottom spanking.
Carter has always been content with the status quo and is frustrated with Nalin's constant defiance of all things considered ladylike. To his way of thinking, it's his duty to lead and her duty to obey. Nalin quickly discovers that his stubborn opinions about the natural order of things won't be easily changed, although he does come to believe that disciplining his recalcitrant wife is pointless. Her reaction to his declaration, however, surprises them both.
Carter and Nalin both want children but have so far suffered more than one devastating loss. They are both thrilled when Nalin becomes pregnant again. However, in addition to having a child, she also wishes to attend the suffrage convention in Dallas. Carter loves his wife, so despite his initial reservations, he agrees to see her safely to the convention and back. Their adventure takes a few twists and turns along the way. Will this couple safely and successfully navigate their way through these turbulent times and find the happily ever after they both deserve?

This book is a quick listen, but is so good! Amelia Smarts gives the perfect western romance with historical facts of the time. Nalin, a strong willed woman is unable to carry a child for the love of her life Carter. She is looking to fill her life with meaning and becomes involved in the suffrage movement. As you can well imagine, Carter is not happy with this, there is a place for women, and it's not voting. I smile a couple of times when it was mentioned that men are physically stronger than women, like that would be the deciding factor of what differences there are between the sexes, but Amelia Smarts is able to weave this all into the storyline. Carter uses spanking as his way of showing Nalin his love, disciplining her and keeping her to his way. She responds to this and has trouble in her own thoughts of why she would want this from her husband, but is also wanting equal rights for women. This ongoing conflict is well managed and their relationship is you can fall into and watch flourish.
I really enjoyed this book, from beginning to end, the evolution of both Carter and Nalin was fun to listen to with Elliot Daniels giving a beautiful performance. His baritone voice is perfect for the western historical and gives a sense of romance and raw emotion.
This story has it all, joy, fear, sorrow, uncertainty, and lots of love. The characters have real depth and the story line is unique. The narrator pulls you into the story with ease. I could listen to him tell me stories all day long. Don't miss this great audio book.
